(Superboy/Spider-Man amalgam)


Amalgam Comics was a unique 1996/97 publishing project by DC Comics and Marvel Comics. It published a series of comics where the two universes had merged. Furthermore, the characters themselves had merged (“amalgamed” ) with their closest equivalent from the other setting, with oft-strange results.

Our Amalgam writeups are very old – they are contemporary to the event. Since it was 20+ years ago, it was just an amusing exercise in merging the characters’ stats to represent their likely new state.
